More
than one million Swedes are now taking medication for depression,
while a study has found people in Stockholm feel insecure due to
surging crime. Around one in ten Swedes now take antidepressants, a
number that has doubled over the last two decades, becoming one of
the countries with the highest use of antidepressant drugs, Swedish
broadcaster SVT reports. Mikael Tiger, a psychiatrist and researcher,
stated that there are several reasons for the rise, including cheaper

aged 10 to 14, but it is individuals over 80 years old who have the
highest usage of the medication.
